Zero-click flood maps
Written by Marketing on April 29, 2014
Many appraisers have to dig through websites (like www.fema.gov) to find a flood map for their report. This is a time-consuming, manual process. Instead, if the property is in a flood zone, use your InterFlood contract to have TOTAL (or WinTOTAL) automatically place a flood map into your report for you.
If you already have an InterFlood contract, it's simple to enable TOTAL to automatically get your flood maps each time you get a location map:
- Open TOTAL, go to Tools, Configuration Settings.
- Click the Maps option on the left.
- Check the box to Get FEMA flood map from InterFlood, and bullet Only if subject is in a flood zone.
- Scroll to the bottom of the window and enter your InterFlood username and password, so you're not prompted for it every time.
- Click Save and Close.
That's it. If your subject is in a flood zone, TOTAL will now get a FEMA map automatically whenever you get your location map.
